Grace Point Church hosts Wild Game Feed

The event is Jan. 18 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Editor’s note: The print version of this article misreported the address of the Wild Game Feed event. It has been updated.

They say fancy recipes don’t make good food, but clean, fresh ingredients. And what can be fresher than game you killed yourself?

So if you shot it, caught it, tagged it, and bagged it, bring it by the Grace Point Northwest Church’s inaugural annual Wild Game Feed to share with others who share you passion for hunting.

The event is being put on by the church’s men’s ministry group, Stronger Men.

“We wanted to get together, eat, swap hunting stories, raise some money for the men’s ministry, play some games and maybe win something, but most of all, have a good time and eat what we shot and caught,” said organizer Eric Anderson.

Although the night will be light-hearted with games, prizes, and a raffle, part of the reason for making the Wild Game Feed an annual event is to encourage men to be social and connect with a community. While both men and women experience depression, men typically recognize the symptoms less, are more unwilling to discuss their symptoms when they do, and are more likely to die by suicide, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.

Anderson had two hunting buddies who died by suicide in the past year, and said people were unaware of how they were feeling.

“Everyone was like, ‘Man, I didn’t know he was so low,’” he continued. “[The event] is in the hopes that we share stories, new and old, and in the process, become stronger together.”

The event will feature a potluck for appetizers, which so far includes deer venison sausage, steamer and razor clams, pheasant, calamari, halibut, and more, and the main course will feature salmon, clam chowder, venison and a venison stew.

The event is Saturday, Jan. 18 from 6 to 9 p.m., and will be hosted at Grace Point Northwest Church at 28121 SE 448 St.
